The Benefits and Challenges of Attracting More Women to Trucking

There’s a lot of discussion these days about the driver shortage in the trucking, and attracting more women to the industry would certainly alleviate the problem. But what are the main challenges? What do women drivers enjoy the most about their job, and what do they enjoy the least? What actions are trucking companies taking to prevent harassment and discrimination in the workplace? How are the different stakeholders in the industry — trucking companies, driving schools, private fleets, truck manufacturers, and many others — working together to increase the role of women in trucking and make the profession an attractive career choice for them?

Ellen Voie, President and CEO of Women in Trucking, addresses those questions and more in this important and timely episode.
